Aquinas Institute Fall 2017 Courses

1. THE 291 Angels and Demons 3 sem. hours Fr. Clinton Sensat, STL

Description: This course is a rigorous study of Catholic angelology and demonology. Lectures will be based on the the source materials of philosophy, the Bible, the Fathers, and the greater Scholastics. The purpose of this course is to grapple with nature and the activity of spiritual beings as far as possible based on the solid information available. A secondary purpose is to clear away the superstitions, silly notions, and dangerous practices that often plague any discussion of angels and demons. Some of the topics discussed will be the constitution of angelic spirits, angelic intellect and will, the angelic hierarchies, angelic and demonic activity, and the fall of the demons.

Day and Time: Wednesdays 6:00 - 8:45 PM Location: John Paul the Great Academy, 1522 Carmel Dr., Lafayette Classes start: August 23 • Classes end: December 6


2. THE 390 Spiritual Theology 3 sem. hrs Fr. Michael Champagne, CJC, STD

Description: This course will provide an in-depth introduction to Spiritual Theology, which can also be termed the Theology of the Interior Life or the Theology of Christian Perfection. The nature of Christian holiness will be treated especially as it involves the integral operation of the theological virtues, the moral virtues, and gifts of the Holy Spirit. Spiritual Theology by Jordan Aumann, OP, will provide the principal material for the course.

Day and Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00 - 8:15 PM Location: John Paul the Great Academy, 1522 Carmel Dr., Lafayette Classes start: Tuesday August 22 • Classes end: December 7

2017 Public Square Rosary Crusade

In this historic year of the Fatima Centennial, it is so important to remember Our Lady's request to pray the Rosary in reparation for all the offenses committed against Our Blessed Mother and Our Lord. In "The Secret of the Rosary", St. Louis de Monfort said: "Public prayer is far more powerful than private prayer to appease the anger of God and call down His mercy, and Holy Mother Church, guided by the Holy Ghost, has always advocated public prayer in times of public tragedy and suffering". 


Join the 2017 Public Square Rosary Crusade at the cluster parishes of St. Joseph of French Settlement and St. Stephen of Maurepas on Saturday, October 14, 2017, at noon. The rosary will be prayed at both churches at noon. (outside so bring your lawn chairs)

Alexander also notes that folks here place a premium on fresh food, which is better for you and better for the environment. "Eating local is not a passing fad," he adds. "It's a way of life.

Every Believer an Evangelizer: Fostering a Culture of Witness Workshop

Are you afraid to speak about your faith or about Jesus to others?  You are not alone.  Most people are!  But if we are going to introduce others to Jesus and his church we need to learn some important skills that don’t have us sounding preachy or “holier-than-thou.” 

The presenters for the workshop Every Believer an Evangelizer: Fostering a Culture of Witness will share practical information and skills on how to share your faith story with friends, family members (children), colleagues, and others in an appropriate way that is both empowering and respectful. 

This FREE day-long exciting workshop will be held on September 9, 2017 8:30AM to 3:00PM at Shulte Auditorium, Notre Dame Seminary.  Seating is limited.  Participants MUST register, and lunch is included.  Please see the attachment for more information, or click here to register

St. Thomas More Knights of Columbus Council 5530 Sportsmen's Raffle

The St. Thomas More Knights of Columbus Council 5530 is conducting its 4th annual Sportsman's Raffle for 5 very nice firearms ranging from a beautiful CZ 20 ga. Over/Under shotgun, to the unique Ruger “Tiger Edition” 10/22 rifle, and the historic Model 92 "Trapper" lever-action carbine.

They’ll all be prized additions to anyone's collection, and every ticket makes you eligible to win all 5 of them because each winning ticket goes back into the hopper. If your ticket is drawn and you do not want to take the firearm, there is a $500 cash option. The cost per ticket is $25.

This is strictly limited to only 500 tickets of which only 50 remain. We’ll draw the winners’ names on Thursday, September 7th at a hamburger supper. Last year’s winners were ecstatic to hear the good news, and we hope that you’re among them this year!

Who Am I to Judge?

How do we talk about morality in a world that no longer believes in truth? When we're bombarded with messages of "Be Tolerant!" "Don't Judge!" and "Coexist!" many good people feel afraid to say anything is right or wrong anymore.

This study gives us important keys to responding to relativism effectively - a Catholic moral worldview. Learn how Catholic morality is all about love, how making judgment is not judging a person's soul, and how in the words of Pope Francis, "relativism wounds people" and is "the spiritual poverty of our times."


When:September 5, 2017 - November 7, 2017 (8 sessions)


Where: Our Lady of Perpetual Help in the LaRose Center (2008 Short St., Kenner, LA 70062)

Time: 6:30-7:30pm

Cost: $20 for workbook

Fiat Friday

Have you ever had a difficult mothering moment—one of those times when you truly didn't know what to do? Or a time when you cast a backward glance and wished you would have done things differently. By identifying struggles and applying virtuous antidotes, our mothering takes on a supernatural character that yields abundant fruit in the lives of our children, and ours as well. 

Filled with lighthearted illustrations, helpful insights, and practical aids, Raising Up Mommy will help you map out a spiritual fitness plan so you can overcome your weaknesses and grow in the virtues you most need to develop.

This event is at St. Peter's Parish in Covington. Cost is $20.
